Reigning XTERRA Pan America Tour Champions Josiah Middaugh and Suzie Snyder successfully defended their titles at the 12th annual XTERRA Oak Mountain Championship race on a sweltering hot day in Pelham, Alabama on May 20, 2017. The two-day event featured more than 350 triathletes and hundreds of trail runners competing in multiple distance trail runs. Together more than 12 countries and 42 U.S. states were represented as they traveled to Shelby County for the Southeast Championship race, which was the fifth of 10 events on the XTERRA Pan America Tour and the first of three majors on the XTERRA America Tour. It combined a one-mile swim in the 77-degrees waters of Double Oak Lake with 20-miles of perfect single-track mountain biking and six-miles of twisting, rolling, tree-lined trail running.

In 2012 OMSP also hosted the ITU Cross Triathlon World Championships as part of the Xterra Southeast Championship. The mountain bike trails at OMSP are considered world class and are a collaborative effort of the Birmingham Urban Mountain Pedlars (BUMP), Shelby County and Oak Mountain State Park.
